Could you hit a homer at an MLB ball park?

Post by gHost Spartan on Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:11 am

I read this story this week and thought it was kind of interesting. Even with that amount of time to train and practice I don't think I could do it. Maybe with an aluminum bat but even then I seriously doubt it. I was more of a Wade Boggs than Mark McGuire type.

Always thought about this. I think its possible but maybe would take a few days of training.

A few days?

You don't think you could do it after a round in the cage?

Up until age 51 yes. I fucked my back up and while it doesn't hurt all the time all my club lengths are way down since then. So I'm assuming I couldn't now.

Yes. But it would have to be a perfect swing.

In my teens and early twenties, only maybe. Anytime after that, even with an entire spring training, it would be embarrassing.
